The Guinness Storehouse is right up there as the most popular visitor attraction in the whole of Ireland. Offering an absolutely unique chance to experience the history behind Ireland’s most famous export, the storehouse is a great destination for anyone visiting Dublin city whether you want to learn about the city’s history or just see one of the country’s most exciting attractions.
Founded in 1759, Guinness quickly became internationally famous as a symbol of Ireland’s strong culture and cuisine, as well as being one of the best tasting drinks anywhere on the market. The Storehouse itself was built in 1902 to improve on the original brewery at St. James’ Gate, and was transformed into one of the Top 10 Dublin Attractions in 2000 to offer visitors an amazing place to visit.
At Travelodge Hotels Ireland, we want to make your stay in our budget Dublin hotels as comfortable as possible. When you book our comfortable accommodation through our website directly we guarantee you lower prices than any other 3 star hotel.
Guinness Storehouse and cheap central Dublin hotels
Spanning over 7 floors, the Guinness Storehouse covers everything there is to know about the famous Black Stuff. Starting out in the world’s largest pint glass (enough to hold more than 14 million pints!), visitors head to see the process through which Guinness is brewed and start out with an early sample of the brew.
Exhibitions looking at the transportation methods that helped Guinness spread across the world and the iconic adverts for the brand lead to the 4th floor where you have the chance to learn about pouring the perfect pint. Over the years Guinness has come to be one of the most important ingredients in Ireland’s cuisine, and the Brewers Dining Hall shows off some of the delicious meals the drink has inspired.
Finally reaching the Gravity Bar at the top floor, you can try a free pint of Guinness while looking over a 360 degree view of Dublin city. An absolutely breathtaking experience that really gives you a new perspective on some of the city’s most beautiful areas.
